Hullo! I’m Dee Elegia.
I’m a Scottish self-taught analog photographer based in Manchester, UK.
Creating with tangible imagery is what really drives and inspires me. I spend most days out and about making new pictures, or in the darkroom developing and printing. I’ve been lucky to have my work exhibited and published internationally. My first book ‘Five Years’ comes out in 2018.
I also run my own print magazine, Elston Gunn:
I’m online. A lot.
(I hope you like cats).
